mike_eckford.jpgLots of great events help wrap up the month of February. First, it was time for Olympic memories again, this time with the Special Olympic athletes as the Tenth Annual MotionBall was held in Vancouver. Sponsored by the young and bright minds behind Six Degrees, the event included a celebrity auction, live music and entertainment and silent auction items to help raise funds. Next, it was time for the Kronenbourg 1664 Brasserie Mystere dinner where guests were treated to a night of special brews and a gourmet meal by renown chef David Hawksworth. And lastly, it was a clear but chilly night in North Vancouver for the first ever Campfires – A Circle of Community event where families came out to enjoy live music, food, crafts and a big bonfire down at the new Ship Builders’ Square at the foot of Lonsdale.
